What can I say. I have the material. I know how to do it. When I get my head down, I can get a lot done quickly. So, this is what happens.
‘Pope Names’ is how I broke into the pope scene. I published my ‘Pope Names‘ book in 2008. It was my first foray into what was a totally alien world for me. The book was well received. People started asking me about the possible names for the next pope. That got me doing work on the ‘Next Pope‘ — something that had occupied me for 3 years. So, it is all connected.
I did need to get my ‘Pope Names’ out in electronic form. I had felt guilt that I hadn’t done so earlier. As a bonus, I threw in all my singular research on ‘Peter the Roman’.
